Hi! So I’d like to revamp the personality system in my game. When a player chooses a certain choice, that choice will put a point towards a personality variable (let’s say witty, tough, charming, or quiet.) I’d like for different versions of scenes to appear depending which personality trait has the most “points.” Actually, I have something like this implemented in my stat screen for the player’s actual stats. It looks a little like this:
I don’t, to be honest in order to accomplish the other flavor text thingy, I asked a similar question to this and simply used the code given to me. I know intermediate-ish Choicescript, but have never touched stuff like multireplace
I think it’s fine. You could experiment with multireplace as Aletheia suggested but it really depends how much you want to change based on the stat - if it’s shorter than a paragraph I’d recommend multireplace, otherwise carry on.
Multireplace just takes less time for smaller changes and you’ll be repeating these commands a lot.
That’s tough, I think it might be more than a paragraph at times. MC’s responses in most scenes will differ depending on personality (they’ll sound a little more standoffish, witty, or upbeat, etc.) I’ll play around with both. Thank you all so much!
Multireplace is definitely better suited to small stuff than big passages of text. But it’s perfect if you want to slip in subtle nuances that alter otherwise invariable text based on how the character sees the world. The effect can be almost magical.
